Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Fleming has urged the public to cut back on use of water to prevent any interruption to supplies.
“Due to the rise in hot weather and an increase in demand over recent days there has been a significant rise in water usage across the north.
“During this pandemic it’s absolutely crucial that supplies are protected and people have enough water to maintain proper hygiene and regularly wash their hands.
“I’m urging the public to heed the calls from NI Water to cut back on unnecessarily using water and be responsible, particularly when using outdoor taps.
“While we want people to enjoy the hot weather and praise their efforts to stay safe, we also must follows the advice given by NI Water and make an effort to use water wisely.”
